Christie's job

I was talking to Christie on the phone and she asked me what I was doing. I told her I was helping Xander with his homework, Christie said that was her job.So I guess when Christie gets home she will be helping her little brother with his homework.
I was going to hang up and Christie asked me why I had to go that she was lonely. I told her I didn't have to hang up we could talk as long as she wanted so we continued to talk for sometime.
Christie asked me if Joybear was with me. I told her no that Joybear was with her Dad. Joybear is Christie's bear and best friend that she has had her whole life. The nursing home has decided to follow a policy of no stuffed animals due to dust and children on the floor with tracs. I asked them why they are enforcing the rule now when they haven't in the two years that Christie has been there. They said they didn't know. Every time I talk to Christie she asked me where Joybear is.I just don't understand the thinking of some people.

Court for tomorrow has been canceled. we where granted a continuance.Please keep praying, I have to tell Christie again that she can't come home.

Will be glad when we are all home

Xander pulled his own tooth tonight. The first thing he asked me was " Will you call Sissy and tell her" I can't wait for Christie to be home. We all miss her being home. I know Xander will benefit when she gets home and I know Christie will. Xander will encourage her to do her therapy and I know it will give Christie the strength and desire she needs to improve and get well. Just 4 more days.

I just talked to Christie. Christie says she is "lonely" I can't wait for her to be home. When she gets home she will always have someone with her. Me, Xander, Tony,Mama and an abundance of friends and family. Christie will always have someone with her that she will never be lonely again.

This is a truly BEAUTIFUL piece. Please Read this at a slow pace, digesting every word and in not hurry... This is a treasure...
>For those lucky to still be blessed with your Mom,This is beautiful. For those of us who aren't, this is Even more beautiful. For those who are moms, you'll love this.
>The young mother set her foot on the path of life. 'Is This the long way?' she asked. And the guide said:'Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it... But The end will be better than the beginning.'
But the young mother was happy, and she would not Believe that anything could be better than these years. So she Played with her children, and gathered flowers for Them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and The sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried,'Nothing will ever be lovelier than this.'
>Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was Dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother Drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, 'Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come.'
>And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and The children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children,' A little patience and we are there.'So the children climbed, and when they reached the top They said, 'Mother, we would not have done it without you.'
>And the mother, when she lay down at night looked up At the stars and said, 'This is a better day than the last, for my Children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness.Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I've given them strength.'
>And the next day came strange clouds which darkened The earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped And stumbled, and the mother said: 'Look up. Lift your eyes to the light. ' And the children looked and saw above the clouds An everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the Darkness. And that night the Mother said, 'This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God.'
>And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and The years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with Courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, For she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill,And beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And Mother said, 'I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end Is better than the beginning, for my children can Walk alone, and their children after them.'
>And the children said, 'You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates.'And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates Closed after her. And they said: 'We cannot see her But she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She Is a living presence.......'
>Your Mother is always with you... She's the whisper Of the leaves as you walk down the street; she's the smell of bleach In your freshly laundered socks; she's the cool hand On your brow when you're not well. Your Mother lives Inside your laughter. And she's crystallized in every tear drop. She's the place you came from, your first home; and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love And your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can Separate you.Not time, not space... Not even death!
